I am a member of Kovan Research Lab.

I am currently enrolled in Faculty Development Program ( OYP) on behalf of Suleyman Demirel University.


I participated in a project supported by Turkish Aerospace Industries, Inc.. In this project, we successfully showed that a flock of three UAVs can be navigated in outdoor environments by only providing user control inputs to the leader UAV in the flock.

I participated in a TUBITAK project - Controllable Robotic Swarms (Kontrol Edilebilir Robot Ogullari). In this project, I have mainly worked on the development of a robotic platform, Kobot.
